Tandem bicycle

Tandem bicycle
Creator: American Bicycle Company
Date: between 1899 and 1902
Tandem bicycle with red painted steel frame. This two-seat bicycle was bought in 1906 by Harry Baugh of Garden City, then handed down to Joe Sartorius, and finally to Joe's daughter, Maria Sartorius Craig. The bike's manufacturer, the American Bicycle Company, existed for a very short time, from 1899 to 1902. Baugh and Sartorius both were living in Garden City when the tandem changed hands. Baugh moved to Kansas from Missouri in the 1910s, and the Sartorius family (originally from Germany) came to Garden City around the same time so Joe could work as foreman in a sugar beet factory. The bicycle's Wichita license tag apparently dates from Maria Craig's period of ownership.
